Since it's introduction in 1958, the Epiphone Texan has been the choice of countless musicians including Paul McCartney, Peter Frampton and Noel Gallagher. Now, Epiphone brings back the Texan combining all the great features of the original with modern updates for today's musician.
Unlike ordinary dreadnoughts, the Texan features a more rounded upper bout and a larger lower bout with a subtle waist. Like the original, the Texan features a premium solid Spruce top with a solid Mahogany back and Mahogany rims. Solid woods resonate beautifully and only improve with age.
The neck is solid Mahogany topped with a Rosewood fingerboard adorned with the original parallelogram inlays. Hand-fitted and glued into the body, the neck features Epiphone's SlimTaper neck profile that's comfortable and easy to play.
And for today's player, Epiphone adds Shadow's state-of-the-art Sonic preamp system with the revolutionary under-saddle NanoFlex( low-impedance pickup to allow acoustic players to "plug in." Discretely mounted inside the sound hole, the Sonic preamp features an easy-access volume control with high and low EQ controls.
